Investigator Financial Disclosure
OP 74.17 outlines TTU's requirements for annual disclosures of significant business and financial interests and TTU's procedures for identification and management of actual or potential conflicts of interest.
Do I need to file or update a disclosure every year?
Yes, if you submit, or plan to submit
proposals for extramural funding. Annual disclosures should be submitted by anyone at TTU who serves, or plans to serve, as a project director or investigator for an externally funded award and by any other person at TTU, regardless of title or position, who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of projects funded by an external sponsor, or proposed for such funding. In some cases, this can include collaborators, consultants, &/or students.
What needs to be disclosed?
Your business and financial interests related to your TTU responsibilities.
What needs to be disclosed? Your business and financial interests related to your TTU responsibilities. These include (but are not limited to) financial interests for you and your immediate family members; certain travel reimbursements, consulting and outside employment in areas related to your TTU responsibilities, and income related to your intellectual property rights. Details are provided on your new or updated annual disclosure and in OP 74.17.
What's “special” about consulting?
You must have prior approval from the Provost.
If you plan to consult or accept any other kind of employment outside TTU, you must get prior approval from your Chair or Director, Dean, and Provost. You can do this via the Outside Employment section of your new or updated annual disclosure. Note that OP 32.07 caps faculty consulting at 10-hrs per week.
Do I need to disclose my international work?
Yes – your colleagues explain why in this video.
Investigators who are planning to participate in PHS (NIH)-funded research must submit an updated disclosure of reimbursed or sponsored travel within 30 days of each occurrence.
